[RFE] Migrate to using NM or systemd for network managment
Last modified: 2014-12-08 10:09:17 EST
Description of problem:
We need to move to using Network Manager for all network management.
This means moving from the existing network service, not editing files directly anymore, determining what files NetworkManager changes and ensure they're persisted correctly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Need to watch blacklisting -- pretty sure we blacklist some (all?) NM components from the image
* make sure we include only api components, existing TUI should be fine as is.
I just created a feature page: http://ovirt.org/wiki/Features/NetworkManager_Support
Would be nice if yyou could look over it Mike, I've surely missed tons of stuff.
F18 network manager supports bonds and vlans, but not bridges, so need to continue deferring this support
Adding bridge bug #199246 as blocker.
Currently node is working with NM.
We still need to sort this out with vdsm, there might be a conflict.
What about all the advanced network topologies which network manager does not support? Aren't they supported anymore when you switch to NM? (Bondings with vlans come to my mind, the last time I looked NM couldn't handle it imho).
